Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

 This architectural work of art is one the world’s largest mosques, with a capacity for an astonishing 40,000 worshippers.

 It features 82 domes, over a 1,000 columns, 24 carat gold gilded chandeliers and the world's largest hand knotted carpet.

 The main prayer hall is dominated by one of the world’s largest chandeliers –10 metres in diameter, 15 metres in height and weighing twelve tonnes. 

 Inlaid mother of pearl tile.

 The hand knotted carpet.

 The pulpit is made from 1 Sandalwood tree trunk (Must have been a biggie).

 The architecture is incredible.


 This is the overflow worship area.

If you are ever in Abu Dhabi, make sure to go here!

Gotta run.
